Traveling a bumpy road!

So much has happened to me since I started SP April 9th 2010. I've lost weight of course and regained some, I've learned to stop eating when full and I've made some great spark friends. I'm sparking much of the time. Many know about my son's accident (6/17/2010)and the changes that has wrought on my life, my sister Véronique's death (11/7/2012) due to a brain tumor and Vicky's congestive heart failure, diabetes and a host of other problems. I also have been blessed with a new grand-daughter ...

I try to keep smiling and stay positive-not always easy, but the good Lord helps. I love life from infancy to old age.
I retired May 25th, 2012.
My 5 children and 6 grandchildren are an important part of my life.

With the exception of my cholesterol levels and a mobile blood pressure I am relatively healthy. Both my son's care and my weight contribute the occasionally elevated blood pressure. My cholesterol has been high since I was in my 40's and I am allergic to statin drugs which limits what I can take for the cholesterol problem. (I am in gray in the first picture, and turquoise in the second)

Member Since: 4/9/2010

SparkPoints: 84,747

Fitness Minutes: 85,021

My Goals:
1. track all of my foods, striving to get 5-8 fruits & veggies per day.
2. I will walk no LESS THAN 5,000 steps and work my way past 10,000.
3. to be more positive, and supportive to those around me, especially new widows.



My Program:
To watch what I eat, most importantly cutting back on cholesterol and sodium. Work to change a sedentary life into a more active life, which is difficult for me. Even though retired, I'm knitting and sewing more that makes for a still sedentary life.

Personal Information:
I was born in Bedford, Ohio of a Belgian mom and an American GI. I have lived in Belgium, Ohio, Florida and am currently in Georgia. I am widowed and have five grown children, one of whom had a traumatic brain injury June 2010 and for whom I am the court appointed Custodial Guardian.

Other Information:
I like to knit, sew-when I have time and play with my grandchildren.
I'd love to be able to travel again, to go back to Belgium and Austria, to see Ireland, Scotland, Switzerland and Italy.

We always get a hard freeze when the daffodils bloom and later the lilacs.

We did get some snow -- an inch or less. I haven't been out there yet. I won't bother to shovel it since the sun is supposed to come out this afternoon.

Life goes on here. John found no change from the anti inflammatory diet and is currently not seeing anyone for his pain. Not much has changed for him at all in the last few months.

Dad is waiting for his epidural for the sciatica but it is still nearly a month away. He has been getting decent relief from the narcotic pain reliever he is on now, the muscle relaxant and ice. He sleeps well at night and is moving more easily.

My step mother is about the same. Our biggest struggle with her is her hiding things. She does that and, of course, doesn't remember where she put it.

I am very thankful for my step sister who I share caregiving with. It is nice to have someone who knows everything that's happening and can be there when I can't. She lives closer than I do but she also has others to care for.

I hope Erik is feeling somewhat better. Does it take a long time to recover from food poisoning? I also hope you are feeling good about all that you accomplish and not so worried about all there is ahead to accomplish.

Take care and emoticon

I like that WooHoo-thank God generation thing. The kids weren't here long enough for the thank God though. ;-)
